Holding on to your grudge... hurts to always have to be honest with the one that you love...

Surfing the web today I found out that Jesse Lacey of Brand New will be doing a solo tour with Kevin Devine through a few lucky cites mainly in the North East. Their Myspace says they will do 11 shows before Brand New hooks up again to do the world famous Reading Festival this summer.

It just so happens I got a solo set from Jesse recently. The banter is great, and the versions are terrific. He does a couple neat covers including Jawbreaker and Neutral Milk Hotel, and stays pretty modest about his talent level. There is the usual sing along of Brand New shows, but mostly its not noticeable. Overall he comes off as a modest guy who's band is getting kind of popular much to his surprise.

I have said it before and ill say it again...of all the artists I have seen no one matches Jessey for pure emotion live. When he sings you can tell he really means it. It is rare to find that in a band these days.
